This note addresses finite plasticity under the constraint that plastic deformations are compatible. In this case, the total elastoplastic deformation of the medium is decomposed as y = ye ○ yp, where the plastic deformation yp is defined on the fixed reference configuration and the elastic deformation ye is a mapping from the varying intermediate configuration yp(Ω). Correspondingly, the energy of the medium features both Lagrangian (plastic, loads) and not Lagrangian contributions (elastic).
We present a variational formulation of the static elastoplastic problem in this setting and show that a solution is attained in a suitable class of admissible deformations. Possible extensions of the result, especially in the direction of quasistatic evolutions, are also discussed.
